it sounds like it was a wonderful wedding - with great weather for your camping trip!
I'm sorry to hear about your roommate's brother; I can't imagine being in that situation, and I hope the family has time to be together before having to return to "normal" life. Have a great weekend - do you have plans for other things next week?
I'm sorry this terrible thing has happened close to you. You are so right about holding on to those near and dear. It's important they always know how much they mean. Makes me hold my petulant tongue more often than not. And so improves all our lives.
